Metal Monday

Bloodbath @ 2017 Gefle Metal Festival

@BloodbathBand #geflemetalfestival #geflemetal

New Bloodbath album has been recorded and should be out soon. There is reason to live.

CSD (Christopher Street Day)

Berlin Gay Pride CSD Christopher Street Day parade

2017 Berlin Gay Pride Parade

@Berlin_de_News @CSD_Berlin

One year ago today I found myself in the thick of Berlin’s gay pride parade on Christopher Street Day. I didn’t intend to go to Berlin for a gay pride festival; nor did I intend my AirBNB to be in the center of the gay quarter of Berlin. However, it ended up being a fun neighborhood and memorable experience.

This year’s CSD falls on July 28. I suppose it’s always on a Saturday near the end of July.

No Prague for me this year, but tonight I’m heading to Budapest for the first time.

This photo was taken from the Petrin Hill Observation Tower. It was a hot day and there were lots of steps, but the climb was worth the view.

Metal Magic XI – Day III

"Not Crazy Enough"

@MetalMagicDK #goblin #FIN #deathhammer #maidenaalborg

I was curious to see Deathhammer, as Sergeant Salsten, pictured above, seemed more than a bit crazy at the performances of others. When he hit the stage I thought he looked like Woody Harrelson had fallen asleep in the sun for about a month or two, and then someone had woken him up by giving him too much speed. During the first song I thought he was going to fall into the audience at times (like he had during the Master’s Hammer show the night before). He didn’t, but his wild and aggressive behavior was over the top. After the first song finished someone yelled out in English “Not Crazy Enough!”. I couldn’t stop laughing.

FIN metal magic

FIN

An amazing amount, and quality, of sound came from these two members of FIN from Chicago.

Maiden Aalborg

Rock Goddess cancelled at the last minute which was fine by me. I much preferred the fill in of Maiden Aalborg who put on an outstanding show.
